Replacing chipboard with Tasmanian Oak

Restoration of Tasmanian Oak

These jobs are very satisfying where we get to do some real full-on carpentry work, which gives us a bit of a break from sanding, sanding, sanding.

This Frankston North home had been extended some 30 odd years ago and the floor was simply chipboard covered with carpet. The current owners have opted to do a major renovation and part of that was to polish the floors throughout and to bring it all into line. This meant pulling out the chipboard and matching the existing Tasmanian oak floors with locally sourced second-hand boards.

Along with doing the chipboard replacement we also had to do a fair bit of floor repair work where a wall had been removed to make way for the new kitchen.

As you'll notice, the replacement boards and the existing floors blended in perfectly.

With the floors now repaired and rebuilt they were then sanded to a Super Fine finish before the application of the 2pac polyurethane to give them the very best in good looks and durability.

All up another great floor.
